 Teacher noteThink about average attendance into the museum, who will go to the museum (families with kids more than likely wanting McDonalds) and the amount of left over food/containers.
Act Three
 Teacher noteAdd together all of the dimensions of your average consumer. I chose a 21 oz drink, 4.1 oz medium fry and a 3.5 oz hamburger. I converted all into gallons and assumed an average family size was 2 adults and 2 children. Then divide the family size by the average meal size in gallons. See how many times this will go a 32 gallon trash can. Find the average amount of visitors to the museum per minute. I started with 2 million per year. Then find the rate for how many people for the rate you found and you come up with about 37 min.
